Linux Support!

Dear friends,
There has been some Linux users who's been asking for a Linux version of Milkmaid of the Milky Way, and today I'm happy to say the game is out for your favourite Penguin-based OS!

I don't have much (any, really) experience with Linux, but initial testing with Ubuntu and Debian has been successful. The game has fairly modest hardware requirements, so if you're running Steam on your gaming setup you should probably be fine. If you experience problems or the game won't run, let me know. Use the refund policy if things go awry, but if the game plays well and you enjoy it - please let other Linux gamers know.

Fullscreen fix

I got some feedback from players who had some trouble getting the game to play in fullscreen. The latest update should make the game fullscreen by default. After the game has loaded, you should also be able to play in windowed mode by pressing ALT + ENTER, which hopefully should make the game easier to run on multi-monitor setups. Also the default language should be set to English.

Thanks all for leaving so many nice reviews, so happy to hear people's experience! <3

About This Game

Milkmaid of the Milky Way is a short 90s style point-and-click adventure game with puzzles, exploration and an exciting story, written completely in rhyme!

Deep in a fjord, a girl and her bovine,
Western Norway, nineteen-twenty-nine.

This is a story from Calf Ledge,
a farm perched on a mountain edge.

It's 1920's Norway, and you play as Ruth, a young woman who lives alone on a remote farm at the end of a faraway fjord. You take care of your cows and make delicious dairy products that your friend sells in the closest town. But the dairy business is not going so well, and life on the farm is lonesome and hard. And at nights mysterious things keep happening to Ruth and her cows, making Ruth wonder: Is this the life she wants?

Then one day a giant, golden ship descends from the sky, forcing Ruth out on a journey that will change her life.

Milkmaid of the Milky Way is a story about moving into the unknown, breaking free from the past, it's a story about age, life, death and time - but most of all it's a story about finding your own place in the universe.
